Willcox, AZ

Arrived in Willcox, AZ, yesterday afternoon and will be here for the next month.  So far it's been rain, rain, and more rain!  But the moisture is needed right??

Today, as it was raining, we decided to check out a few of the local wineries, yep, they have several here in the area.  Passion was our first stop and we had a nice chat with Cory there.  As it was pouring, I was concerned with getting in and out of the winery without too much wet and totally forgot pics!

Then it was off to downtown historic Willcox where we visited Leaping Frog which is located in an old historic building that used to be a saloon.  In fact, the youngest brother of Wyatt Earp was shot and killed there in 1900.....and a distant cousin of Wyatt Earp, Karina, now works the tasting room in that same building!!

After that, we drove over to Coronado Vineyards.  We had visited them the last time we were in the area staying in Benson, AZ, and thought they served dinner.  Looking for a place to celebrate Mike's upcoming birthday.  They no longer serve dinner but we did have a nice time there talking to Kara, Martha and Susie.
